the filibuster. yes, 90% of republicans -- 90% of americans are for universal background checks. we discovered yesterday that 90% of republicans are against it. and are willing to vote against it. president obama really reflecting i think the outrage felt by the vast, vast majority of americans. went out to the rose garden yesterday afternoon. flanked by joe biden on one side gaby giffords on the other side. parents of the newtown victims there standing with him. one of the fathers of one of the young first graders who actually spoke first in the rose garden and then president obama took the microphone and you could tell he wasn't faking it. he was pissed. >> obama: do we really think that thousands of families whose lives have been shattered by gun violence don't have a right to weigh in on this issue! do we think their emotions, their loss is not relevant to this debate? so all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. >> bill: the president alluding to the fact that some republicans had actually criticized the newtown families for coming to washington and lobbying saying that t
and deliver a message of resolve. a message of commonalty that we all people as americans with the people of boston, those visiting the marathon who endured this horrific event and demonstrated bravery in the aftermath. the first lady, michelle obama also here. she said yesterday after the attack that it's a reminder in times of crisis we respond with courage and grit and selflessness. this is the spirit of boston, it is also the spirit of the country. again, jenna the president here to reassure this community and let them know that the country is behind them as they recover from that awful terror attack on monday? we expect to hear from the president as you mentioned, rick in about 45 minutes from now. we'll bring our viewers back to the cathedral when the president begins to speak. you've been doing so much reporting about this investigation. what is the latest you have, rick about those reported photos, about potential suspects? >> reporter: well, we know that federal law enforcement officials are telling fox that they do have images, and videos that they have been scanning and careful
and squander the enormous sacrifice of american lives. in iraq, the obama administration's decision to withdraw u.s. troops in 2011 has resulted in the research of al qaeda, increasing the violence and growing caribbean influence. the picture of iraq looks increasingly violent. obamahanistan, president is making the same mistakes based on arbitrary time lines and without a finding the underlining the objectives strategy and mission. in my office last week, we discussed the need to have capability to support the afghan security forces and counter- terrorism efforts. when making decisions about our mission, the president should listen more to the professional military commanders on the front lines and less to the political advisers in the west wing. this committee was told he recommends possibly 20,000 troops remain in afghanistan after 2014. that would be about 13,600 u.s. troops, about half that many international forces. our commander tells us the mission should be to continue counter-terrorism efforts and train and it finds afghan security forces. for those missions across the whole afghanist
. neither democrats nor republicans seem to like it. republicans won't have any of mr. obama's tax hike and higher spending andteams upset the president wants smaller indecrease in payment to retiree. the $3.7 trillion proposal amounts to the largest budget in american history. it doesn't come close to balancing, deficits in perpetuity. the president looking for easy win on gun control and looking for congress to produce the first major fun control legislation in two decades. but it's unclear what the president can get through congress. they agree there is no chance of passage for limit on magazines and the rest is window dressing on an issue that the country takes more seriously than the president originally estimated. he will take all of that up with ted cruz who emerged on the first year in washington as one of the party's national leaders. wayne lapierre will join us as well. other stories, kim jong un taking his bellicose rhetoric to new heights issuing daily threats against the united states and south korea. fox news military analyst, four-star general jack keane weighs in. >> sen
compound. afghanistan, while the surge was going on, over 100,000 american troops on the ground, joined saudi arabia as the only other country in the world that became so intolerant they did not have a single church. the obama administration knew about it and actually reported about in the state department religious freedom, which is still the gold standard for human rights reporting. but at the time it was happening they said nothing and did nothing. so on our watch this has happened. the bush administration, two-thirds of the christians in iraq were driven out. we have it in the book about conversations we had about secretary rice at the time saying please protecting. again, we had 100,000 troops on thground and she said no, we cannot get involved. it's sectarian here. meanwhile, the united states had just installed a shiite government in iraq and was negotiating on the path of sunni leaders to get sunni appointments in the government. so it just rang true. >> it does seem as i listen because i'm being educated on this, some rights are more equal than others, right? in other words, if
before the next election in november. so i appreciate president obama's stand. i hope he will become stronger. i think it's not too late for him to put pressure on. i don't think it's too late for the american public. i am recommending that the senate has a special dictate in their legislation. they have more control and more power than the house of representatives. so every person is every state is represented by my senators as well as their own. so i would suggest everybody take a postcard, address it to each one of the senators, get a group together and get a labeling matrix and printout labels and send shame on you to everyone that voted no and thank you to everyone that voted yes. we need to continue this fight. >> when it comes to the bombing in boston, nbc news is now confirming with cambridge pd that there were no gun permits and petitions to carry a weapon for either of the brothers suspected of being the bombers. by all accounts they were suspected of carrying weapons illegally. do you think this terror attack would put a new heat on lawmakers for tighter gun laws? >> i hop
the gang of eight telling america that its legislation is what american law enforcement needs. since 2008, president obama has ignored many of the immigration laws enacted by congress and has instead created his own immigration system that unlawfully provides protections for millions of illegal. illegal of course, congress has done nothing to stop president. that submit to everyone america will never have an effective immigration system as long as presidents and their appointees are permitted to ignore the united states congress and pick and choose the laws they will enforce and enact their own laws without congress through agency policy. this bill does nothing to address these problems. in fact, unbelievably, it gives far greater authority and control to a president and the secretary of dhs, exactly the opposite of what our country needs to create a consistent and effective immigration system. if the laws enacted by congress are not enforced by, the by america has no promise of future enforcement. -- if the laws enacted by congress are not enforced by the nocutive, then america has promi
's going on? i thought as obama said the tide of war is receding. i thought we don't even use the use the phrase the war on terror. i thought the guy who killed 13 americans in the fort hood shooting who jumped up on a table and yelled ala akbar which is the signature of the jihad is still today called by this administration officially work place violence it's absurd. >> undermines the will of americans. >> do you ever think we are going to know why the president is doing this? ever? >> i'm not sure -- i mean, we can all speculate. i don't think he will even admit it he will say i want to make sure -- he will say i want to make sure. >> bill: the word muslim terrorism in this whole boston thing. >> he is afraid if he uses the word muslim it's going to stigmatize a billion people on earth which is ridiculous. >> bill: everybody knows it's muslim terrorism but he won't admit it because is he afraid they are going to be stigmatized. they are already stigma tides. >> you don't have to convince me. >> bill: i know. it's so insane. i don't understand. >> in the end it's embarrassing. >> it
, news busters is pulling this -- saudi americans are proud to be democrats to support obama. >> caller: don't pin that on me. >> hal: it doesn't matter. they're crazy people we shouldn't have to listen to. but that's i think why the president doesn't use terms like terror and right out of the box. why there should be the patient adult work of solving the crime. >> not according to bill o'reilly. >> because the panic harms a lot of innocent people. not only that, but the relationships with other americans that should not be harmed by this process at all. there should not be a point where you should have to feel on edge at all by the preliminary freakout that goes with this. there's no reason for it. >> stephanie: i love he was running. it is like so was everybody. they were running away. >> hal: how many people have been shot over the years from running from -- big events because the police officer was like he was running. you didn't identify yourself as a police officer. in your opinion plain clothes you were waving a gun. i would run too! >> stephanie: exactly. >> hal: there's that. >
and magnified by president obama one our later as he spoke surrounded by victims of gun violence. >> obama: i heard some say blocking this step would be a victory. my question is a victory for who? a victory for what? victory for not doing something that 90% of americans, 80% of republicans, the vast out of your constituents wanted to get done? it begs the question who are we here to represent? i heard folks say having families lobby for this legislation was some how misplaced. a prop somebody called it. emotional blackmail some outlets said. are they serious? do we really think that thousands of families whose lives have been shattered by gun violence don't have a right to weigh in on this issue? do we think their emotions, their loss is not relevant to this debate? so all in all this was a pretty shapeshameful day for watch. >> we're joined by cofounder stop violence and kids joe rosenthal and kim russell, thank you for joining me on this emotional evening. it's a pleasure to have both of you back. kim, i would like to start with you. you're personally touched by gun violence, what are your
conference of the white house lawn, president obama sounded equally determined, but a great deal angry with members of the senate to fill to tighten laws on gun control measures. >> most americans think that's already the law. a few minutes ago, 90 percent of democrats and the senate voted for that idea. but it's not going to happen. because 90 percent of republicans voted against the idea. >> the president blamed the national rifle association for misinformation. if they supported the background check bill. >> all in all this was a pretty shameful day for washington. but this effort is not over. >> the president says he will keep pushing of the passage of this legislation and his administration will take whatever steps it can without congress to protect people from gun violence. ultimately the background check legislation received 54 votes needed 60 to pass. a ban on high-capacity ammo clips and an assault weapon ban also went down in defeat. dan carmen, kron4 news. a line >> pam: police are offering a five -thousand dollar reward. for leads to the arrest of a man accused of molesting

americans and the subject that the obama administration has really been focused on for these past four years, and we're going to remain focused in this area for the next four years, and that's achieving real, evidence-based drug policy reform to both reduce drug use, but also the consequences. and more and more the debate about drug policy in america has become extremely polarized. one side advocates in believing that legalization is the only path to drug policy reform. legalization is described as solving mexico's organized crime and violence problems, as creating a windfall for state and local coffers here in the united states and along with many other benefits that are all talked about around legalization. then you have the other hand. now, on the other hand, we have the tough on crime, the enforcement-centric war on drugs that was mentioned in my introduction in that approach. and that's one that treats addiction primarily as a criminal justice problem despite this ever-growing body of scientific knowledge and evidence that this approach is counterproductive, and it's not effective. but

someone who is willing now, for example, to talk to the americans the way the "new york times" reported on monday that he had sent a message through bill richardson who was in caracas to president obama saying let's talk. is that true? we'll see. my sense is that he's not -- and i agree with you a little bit, i think, nicholas -- he's not up to the job if he really only got half the vote. that is not something that is going to make for stin presence in the presidency. >> charlie: for the most part he would carry on the policies of hugo chavez. >> i think he would except that a lot of economic reforms have to be undertaken very quickly because the economy can't continue the way it is among other things giving gasoline away. they can't go on that way. >> nick raised the question of ideology. it's important to note that the opposition it wasn't an election about ideology. the opposition, what was fascinating about it is it ran on a comain to administer it more efficiently. they accepted the social missions. they accepted even the foreign policy. dressed in red. he was in some ways praising
will repeat the mistakes of iraq and squander the enormous sacrifice of american lives. in iraq, the obama administration's decision to withdraw u.s. troops in 2011 has resulted in the research of al qaeda, increasing the violence and growing caribbean influence. the picture of iraq looks increasingly violent. in afghanistan, president obama is making the same mistakes based on arbitrary time lines and without a finding the underlining the objectives strategy and mission. in my office last week, we discussed the need to have capability to support the afghan security forces and .ounter-terrorism efforts about ourg decisions mission, the president should listen more to the professional military commanders on the front lines and less to the political advisers in the west wing. this committee was told he recommends possibly 20,000 troops remain in afghanistan after 2014. that would be about 13,600 u.s. troops, about half that many international forces. our commander tells us the mission should be to continue counter-terrorism efforts and train and it finds afghan security forces. missions acro
on the television for those first couple of weeks, because you didn't see the president. and i think president obama has learned the lesson that you do have to speak early, speak often, speak confidently and i'm glad he's kind of cautious, to be honest with you. i know sometimes there's a fetish in american for sort of bellicose language. it makes us feel we're going to get whoever did it but when you don't know who did it, there's not a lot of bellicose language that's useful. it's more useful to find out who did it, to be methodical, find out what's happening. and i think the mashed obama is one of the reason he is got elected, he's a stable, measured presence. it's important that he do that, but also be present. >> michael before we let you go, there's demand for answers, a lot of pressure on naming a suspect. but in the end, i mean this could take a considerable amount of time. you think about the anthrax attack, post 9/11. the answers around that remain sort of hazy to this day. as an expert had has dealt with these issues before, i'm sure you would caution us that the solutions may not be fort
